Seniors Summer League - Week 9!

summer leagueSorry I've got a bit behind with updating the Seniors League over the last couple of weeks.  However we are now back on track with the League table updated to include results calculated from the June Medal on 5th June and the standard League event on 12th June.  The demands of Seniors matches and other activities have caused the delay - sorry!. 

When the Medal scores were converted to League Stablefords the winner on 5th June was Allan Swanston on 35 points.  John Lunn also scored 35 points - remember his League handicap was 4 less than his National Handicap that day.  Allan had the better inward half.  In fact they both had excellent back nines but Allan's was even better than John's.  Bob Luthwaite took third place on 34.  As non-one broke net par there is just one League handicap cut as a result of the Medal round.  Allan's League handicap reduces to 15.

This week, Monday 12th June, there were thirteen Seniors playing in fairly good conditions.  Again, all scores were below net par.  After verifying the cards and making a few minor alterations to Stableford scores the winner was Ron Robertson on 34 Jock Henderson took second place on 33 with Ray Johnson third on 32Ron's League  handicap therefore is cut by one to 18.

Two weeks of results have shaken up the League.  The top of the League shows that consistency is the most important element of long term success.  None of the top five players have won a Summer League event very recently but they have always picked up League points.  Tam Glendinning takes over the top slot on 39 points, followed by John Lunn on 37.5 and Alister Legge on 34.5

Next week is a standard league event.  All Seniors welcome - meet by 9:45 for a prompt 10:00am tee off.

Results are sorted by Total, (highest to lowest), then by number of scores counting to the total (Lowest to highest), then by Mondays played (lowest to highest) and finally by Christian Name if still a tie.

The Summer League runs on Monday mornings, 10am, when the Yellow tees are in place.  For 2017 this means 10th April to approximately the end of October, beginning of November.  When Mondays coincide with a Seniors Medal, 18 hole stroke play scores will be converted to Stableford and League scores using current League handicaps.  There will be a couple of weeks when the league coincides with a Home team match at Minto.  In those weeks the league can still be played as long as seven Seniors are available for play.  If less than seven, Seniors not in the match should still play.  When a Home Match day coincides with a League day, we would ask that League players start at 09;30 rather than 10:00.

On week 1, League handicaps equal National Handicaps.   For individual Stableford scores in excess of 36 any week [or 2*n when n holes are played], the player’s  League handicap is cut by 1 for every 2 points or part thereof over 36, i.e. 37 / 38 incurs a cut of 1, 39 /40 incurs a cut of 2 etc.  In addition the week’s winner has his handicap cut by a further 1. In previous years, League handicaps have stayed the same or gone down only..  There has been no provision for handicaps to rise. Perhaps there should be, to even up any handicap anomalies; see below

League handicaps are completely independent of National Handicaps which remain unchanged throughout.  The aim of adjusting handicaps is to spread the prize money around, ensure everyone has an equal chance of winning and provide close competition throughout the Series as well as providing a pleasant round of golf.
